East Campus Information

McKinnon Secondary College East Campus (Year 8-9)

The new East Campus of McKinnon Secondary College is a modern, state-of-the-art, engaging and challenging learning environment for our Year 8 and 9 students. 

Our teachers have worked hard to review and revitalise our curriculum offerings at these year levels. The high level use of technology for learning, the embedding of critical thinking skills into all subjects and affording our students and staff flexible learning environments are just some of the areas that enhance the learning experience of our students.

All students complete their learning experience at the campus by graduating with a “McKinnon Passport”. This involves completing our Positive Education course and their participation in our Job Ready program:

• Barista & Food Handling certificates
• Community service experiences
• First Aid Level CPR qualification
• Career education program

Our Year 8 Survivor Program involves a greater study of indigenous issues and appreciation of this important culture. Whilst at Year 9 the new core subject ‘Wisdom and Service’, based on our school motto, provides opportunities for our students to contribute positively to the school and wider community. The new subject ‘Mind, Body and Soul’ involves participation and the study of physical education, healthy relationships, nutrition and Positive Education.

We are very excited to begin this next chapter for the College. The new campus will help us build continuous improvement and prepare students for a successful senior education and a happy and healthy life beyond school.

At East Campus students have a strong emphasis on developing career goals and preparing for senior education while participating in the local community. There is a strong emphasis on STEAM-based project work (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) with a focus on inquiry, research, testing hypotheses, presentation skills, leadership and community service.

With a focus on the middle years, and strong pedagogy around collaboration, creative and critical thinking, and more hands-on learning, this site provides a great opportunity to transform education for this age group.
